Randomness Retrieval and Verification

To retrieve and verify the latest random value using the experimental configuration, install Golang v1.8+, set your GOPATH, and execute:

go get -u github.com/dedis/pulsar
cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/dedis/pulsar
pulsar random public.toml

Disclaimer: This service is still experimental. While the protocols have been peer-reviewed, the implementation has not yet been independently audited. Thus, do not use the produced randomness for security-critical applications.
